There is a Bugzilla entry concerning this


Due to a maintenance issue, changes to bugs between 2015-01-07 and
2015-01-10 were lost. Please resubmit any updates as appropriate. We
apologize for the inconvenience.

Anyway, to reliably build webkit-gtk you must enable BOTH WEBGL and
WEBAUDIO, otherwise the build will fail.
